Good old flip phone. Camera is good enough for the odd snap. Always has good reception and calls seem clean - but people often complain they can't hear me.

Badly designed menus are nearly useless (e.g. you have two options: ignore and dismiss. Aren't they the same?).
Anyhow, it's an old phone now. (read more)

Pros: I only like the design, nice and slim so you can fit it in pocket and purse.
Cons: IT has a short battery life, the buttons are hard to press and the surface scratches really easly.

And really, in a mobile phone a major part is having it work all the time when your out and about. I also had trouble with texting because the buttons which are... (read more)

Had the original V3 and loved it, I expected this Motorola MOTORAZR V8 to be a more modern upgraded version of the original. Turns out that it is still pretty much the same as the original version that was out 5 years ago. A massive let down. (read more)

I upgraded to the Motorola MOTORAZR V8 phone two months ago, loved it at first but after 3 days it started to turn itself off and then power up again when i was in the middle of sending a text or even on a call!!!
I am now currently on my THIRD handset after experiencing the exact problem with the replacement handset and surprise surprise the same problem has now occurred and I'm pulling my hair out!! All TMobile want to do is repair it yet again. (read more)

Thought I would love my Motorola MOTORAZR V8 as I did my last Motorola. What a mistake. I was in an emergency situation this weekend and needed to make a call and could not as the phone had jammed. That is what I thought mobile phones were for. Cannot wait to change it. (read more)

The Motorola MOTORAZR V8 seemed like a good phone with lots of features, but unless you have time to study the manual and learn them all, I don't think there are that many useful features anyway. (read more)
